not bad...

By scott thomas

from indiana

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

ive had the MIM HSS strat for 4 years now and it is my everyday axe. I bought it originally becuz i wanted something cheap that if it gets banged up its not a big deal and i couldnt have picked a more sturdy guitar for the money. when i first got it i couldnt keep it in tune, so i changed the strings to some .010's and havent looked back. now when i use the tremolo it hardly ever comes out of tune. in the 4 years ive had this guitar it has really grown on me. the body sits in my lap comfortably and the neck is smooth (although i dropped mine a few times and nicked the back of the neck) the finish still looks beautiful but there is a small bubble on the bottom of the body. i was told this is common with mexican strats. it doesnt bother me though as i plan to play this untill it falls apart. plugged in it sounds just like any other strat- twangy, bluesy, clear. the pickups in it are fine for playing at your house or for a hobbyist. if you gig or what not you may want to swap out the stock p-ups idk. but overall i give this fender 5 stars comparing it to other guitars in the price range. i play it everday and i have been since purchasing it in 2008 and this guitar will be able to satify me for years to come

Great Ax for a starter

By ryan bova

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

just picked this SSH brown sunburst mexican beauty at the robinson tws store. it was not my first pick , i acctually wanted the modern player ssh with the coil tap. but for 100 bucks more the rep told me Mexi is heavier then the modern player and helps with sustain. I could add the coil tap in the swich later for like 50 buck if i wanted and he said try without first and return if i didnt like it or add the coil tap . I an very happy with it as is, now the stock picture on GC website is little lighter then in the store. it is actually darker then pictured which is cool very comparible to the road worn color. It litertaly just was shipped to the stiore and this was the only ssh and color in the store so, i grabbed it. first yes the 2 single coils are weak in possitions 1-4, for 100-200 bucks throw duncans or hot rails on there . but the full on 5 possition humbucker is amazing sounding with the mustang 40 w V.2 ;i dont think i even would change the humbucker wouldnt be worth it and sounds good already. so technical freaks yea you probably want to get the hot rails edition and spend the extra 200-500 buck or get the american standard for 1K plus. im not going on tour anytime soon and not a recording artist so i cant speak for your taste and technicals. for a beginner i think it is ideal and the sales staff was not pushy very knowlageable even a few jokesters. thanks to the sales guy Leon for the help

Lovely Axe

By Jeff Martin

from Portland, OR

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

Got this model in Portland a couple weeks ago. Was a bit leary of the 'bucker and how that might change what I want in a Strat. Also, I was fixated on rosewood fret boards for some reason. Both concerns were unfounded. This Strat can sustain a scream indefinitely. The lower setting on the 5-position toggle (where I spend most of my time) is still pure Strat. The maple fretboard is ultra fluid and merges with you rather then require you to coax it into doing what you want. Stays in tune forever (even in Portland!) I squeeze it tight every night now! Ultra sexy curves and finish (heard from ladies). It makes me feel like a Fender marketing exec. "At this low price, why play anything but the real thing?"

Great Strat

By Raul Ortega

from Miami,Florida

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar on Saturday March 23rd. I tried various Epiphones, a Gretsch,and an Ibanez. When I played this Fender Strat, I was convinced this guitar is going home with me.It has a double coil which brings out its powerful,clear sound.The neck is as smooth as silk making it easy to play.This guitar is made in Mexico, with American components. Another thing I like about the guitar is the price, which is great for such a quality guitar. I love this guitar,and am glad I purchased it. I would highly recommend this Fender to anyone.

Great Guitar For the Price

By Adam Schott

from Fort Jones, California

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

I've been playing guitar for 6 years now and I am very satisfied with my Standard Stratocaster. I bought the guitar when i only had two years' experience under my belt. It was a great guitar for me as a beginner, and my skills have not outgrown this guitar as i have become better (I would consider myself an intermediate player now). The guitar has a very smooth action and a great sound. The pickups it comes with are more than adequate for playing as a hobbyist (i.e. around the house, with friends, etc.). In my experience trying out different guitars at the store, it outperformed many other guitars in its price range. My only complaint is that in the early months of ownership, the guitar needed frequent truss rod adjustments and i could never seem to get it in tune and keep it in tune. These issues have been resolved by getting a new set of strings (I went with Elixir .10 gauge) and simply the passage of time. Now my strat looks great, sounds great, and feels great. It is an excellent guitar for the price.

Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

4 months ago I bought the American Standard Strat and yesterday I got a great deal for a MIM one so I took it.
The Am std is great for sure but.....I swear I cannot tell the difference between the two - both are feeling exactly the same and to be honest, I like the pickups of the MIM wayyy more.
The building quality of these two guitars is identical.

I have no regrets for buying the Am std cause I needed to have it in order to know what is the feeling to own the legendary Am std Strat once and for all.

    Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar a little over a month ago and its been great so far. The only problem i've seen is some small buzzing on the frets but its easily fixed. Has an overall great sound though.

      Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

      After literally almost 2 decade of playing only my Maton BG-808 acoustic (an Australian classic brand played by many Aussie greats) and my wife's Martin, I decided it was time to get a little electric spark back into my life and after a few hours of toodling around at the Hollywood GC store, I settled on this beauty. I absolutely LOVE it. I originally got a pure single coil/rosewood version of the guitar which was great but I personally find the feel of the maple so much better. It really feels more icy to slide around on even though I would give the aesthetic of the rosewood a slight edge. However, what really makes my swap a no brainer was the incredible added versatility that I get from the humbucker on the bridge. It absolutely cooks with full sustain and edge so when if you're going to have only one guitar and you love the strat sound, but want to change it up a little from time to time, this guitar really fills that gap beautifully.

      I've fallen in love with the electric guitar all over again and playing little licks on this is pure pleasure.

        Good guitar as expected, but small imperfection

        By David Kang

        from Chicago, Illinois

        Comments about Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar:

        I bought this in Arctic White Gloss Maple fret. Overall, looks great, sounds great, holds good as expected, but I did notice one place on the body where the glossing was missed about a size of a quarter. In general, it's not easy to see it, but under a bright light and reflection, it is noticeable. Besides, this guitar being Strat from Fender - a brand I totally respect, just a small imperfection bothers me... Not sure if this because it's made in Mexico?
